I’m a very big fan of open-ended, process-oriented, creative play for kids. This means I like to give my kids play opportunities that they can take in any direction they want, rather than forcing them to create or play with a specific end goal in mind. My preference for open-ended play holds regardless of whether we are doing a craft activity, engaging in sensory play, or simply enjoying some pretend play.

This week I am highlighting eight open-ended play ideas shared at last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op. There are some great ideas here that are bound to stimulate your kids’ creativity and imaginations!
